Abstract

Previous research has shown that low-frequency pulsed components of electromagnetic fields (EMFs), such as mobile phone signals radiated at talk-mode (8 Hz-pulsed EMFs) can induce biological changes. Mobile phones generate different EMFs during talk, listen and standby modes, with EMFs pulsing at even lower frequencies during the latter two (listen mode: 2 Hz-pulsed EMFs, and standby mode: below 2 Hz-pulsed EMFs). To date, this differentiation has been ignored in relation to the EEG and sleep.
